The shared outdoor swimming pool (11.5 x 5.5m) is heated, salt-filtered (soft on skin and eyes) and fenced with child-proof gates to protect our young guests. We aim to maintain the water temperature at 28°C – 30°C in the main season and as high as possible at other times although this always depends on the outside temperature (the higher, the more efficient the heat pump will work). The terrace area, paved in local stone, has ten comfortable sun loungers and several sun umbrellas. Inflatable pool toys are provided.
This room has been recently refurbished with many new features (e.g. soft floor mats), making it baby and child friendly and a wonderful area for our little guests to play. There are toys for all ages, dressing up clothes, a baby gym, ride on toys, books for children and parents, board games, table football, table tennis and games for outdoors.
Our “enchanted” playground, set in a shady forest clearing, includes a climbing tower, slide, see-saw, baby and toddler swings, wooden playhouse with kitchen, sand pit with toys and a bench for tired parents!
In front of the gite patios is a large meadow where the children can play with their new found friends, let their imagination and creativity run freely, have a picnic, play football, badminton, cricket or hide and seek; safely and in full view.
Travelling with little ones is never completely hassle free, so in order to help you on your journey to us we offer to do some shopping for you. To get you started we also provide a little of some staple items such as coffee, tea, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper, cleaning materials, dishwasher tablets and toilet paper.
If you do not fancy cooking on the evening you arrive, we can offer you to pre-order a homemade quiche from a local lady at the market (she uses only local, seasonal produce and organic where possible). We treat ourselves occasionally and they are delicious. Prices and options on request.
An extensive information guide awaits you in your family friendly gîte, listing all the wonderful child friendly restaurants in our area, the sightseeing, farmers and evening markets, medieval festivals, vineyards, brocantes, local activities, shops, pharmacies, doctors and more.
While the children are playing outside or in the playroom you can have a deep tissue massage, pedicure, facial or other beauty treatment in the privacy of your own cottage with our local qualified Beauty and Holistic therapist Karen. We can email you the list with the various treatments and prices in advance.
The laundry room is equipped with two washing machines and one tumble dryer. Each gîte is equipped with ironing board and iron. Do not forget that all bed linen, bath and pool towels are included in the rental price.
